Letter from Colm to his mother


Dear mum,

I wrote you a lot of letters, but I don’t get one back from you, maybe you don’t get mines. I´m now 14 years old and I decided to write you that letter after a long time, because I know that we won´t met each other in our lives. I don’t care about why you left me or why you don’t hold me back, I decided to catch up with this chapter in my life.

Maybe you won´t get this letter or won´t read, but I want you to know that I’m not mad or angry at you. I have a family now, a home. I go to school, I have friends, I have finally a normal live, a live I dreamed about.

Maybe you know from my last letter, that Bill died. I´m living now with Blue, Bills daughter she doesn’t give me like you away. We’re living in a beautiful house with Joe, Blues Husband and Rusty. I want you to know that I’m finally happy with my new family they gave me the love I needed, what you can´t gave me. They are carrying about me like I were there child.

I hope at all that you have a good live, maybe I have siblings, maybe not, maybe I will never know.

Your son Colm


Diary entry


Dear diary, today was my saddest day ever, today Bill left us. I can´t even realize that, it´s like a dream. It happened so fast. It was such a terrible feeling to see Bill there, lying in the bed and had nothing to do, to bring him back. I felt so useless in that moment. It´s like I lost my only friend, my granddad, even my dad, he did everything for me.

Who will now care about me, who will now be there for me. It´s like the day my mum left me in the orphanage. I have nobody now, I’m alone again. I don´t know how my life is moving on now. Where I would go what would happen. One half of me hopes that Blue would take me up, but my other half thinks that she won´t do that, because she doesn’t even know me and I would remind her to her dad.

Maybe I just should talk to her and ask she what she would do with me, but not now. It´s too early. It´s so fresh with Bill, we all are sad and can´t think with a clear head. I just hope she won´t gave me away.


Inner monologue of Colm in chapter 8


I don’t know how to get over it. Tommy, my best friend, my only friend is dead. I can´t believe it. It can´t be real, but he is lying there, there under the ground. It might be cold there what would he do there, what would I do here without him. He was so young and had so much to reach in his live, but they don´t let him. He doesn’t deserve that. Nobody deserves death.

The brothers killed you. It´s their fault. They are responsible to a death of a young boy. They had to pay for your death Tommy, they can´t live their lives like nothing happened, while you are lyi.....[read full text]

Also with driving with Bill he could have a change to go back to England, because so he comes to the city and could look there for a ride or ship to England.

In my view Colm made the best decision and drove with Bill.



Book review


This review is about the novel, A prayer for Blue Delaney´´ written by Kirsty Murray, which deals about an orphan called Colm, who escapes from the orphanage and get help by an old man, Bill and his dog Rusty.

I think that that novel is a good novel for the youth, because it shows how a live of an orphan can look like. That he made with that early age so terrible experiences. And it also shows how the Aboriginal people lived at the time, with what for a fear they lived. The story was not exciting, but I think this makes this novel out, because it is a sad and realistic story, it explains how bad and difficult a live could be.

The novel is also good written you could understand everything it was not too difficult and it has a good length.

So, I think that this novel is a relevant story for being dealed with in school, but I won´t read it at home or personal. But I recommend it for the people who likes to know more about history and how the life of the stolen Generation looked like and especially how al life of an orphan looked like after the world war II.

In the afternoon Blue went outside and Colm and Joe had a conversation. Joe explained, that is is okey to be sad and they talked about that Colm wasn´t even Bill´s grandson.

Joe told Colm that Blue cares about him and even if Colm didn´t know how his future is going to look like, he should always hold his flame, his light, his hope bright and that Colm and Blue are on the same team and that she is trying to keep her light bright too.
